Artist's Description

Wat Lao Photisaram Buddhist Temple in Conley, Georgia (just southeast of Atlanta) It is not quite built yet but you can see it off of 675.

A favorite motif of Angkorean sculptors from approximately the 12th century A.D. onward was that of the Buddha, sitting in the position of meditation, his weight supported by the coils of a multi-headed naga that also uses its flared hood to shield him from above. This motif recalls the story of the Buddha and the serpent king Mucalinda: as the Buddha sat beneath a tree engrossed in meditation, Mucalinda came up from the roots of the tree to shield the Buddha from a tempest that was just beginning to arise.

Canon T1i, ISO 100, 1/200, f/5.6
